Listened as thought it was a classic but what a sad and depressing story. Boring and dull, great if you need something to help you sleep and feel you are living your best life.

Utterly beautiful take

Thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. It was really moving, thought provoking and it will make you think for a while after.

Like The Haunting of Hill House meets 17th Century history

A really creepy tale of witch craft, Victorian superstition and 17th century art.
I’ll not be able to look at a cardboard cut out the same way even.
Great ending and thoroughly engaging throughout.

Loved this book and narration. It’s full of dark humour and it’s insightfully funny. With a partner at Microsoft it was pretty accurate at times too. Can’t wait to see the film now.

Great heartwarming story

Gentle story that inspires and warms the heart. I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book and watched the film after too.

Clearly written to full-fill a publishing contract, no soul to this book. Dull and narration is dire. Had to finish as had chosen this as a book club read.

It’s been a while since a book has made me laugh out loud, cry and feel so angry. I know it will make me look at Doctors in a more forgiving light. I was already thankful for the NHS and this has inspired me to be more vocal about it being supported. Thank you Adam Kay for writing this gem of a book.

Made me cry with joy, beautifully written story which is amusing in places. Love the kindness, the stubbornness and the adventures of the characters. Now one of the best books I have listened to.

Wonderful book discussing the beauty of the rainforest and how precious but vulnerable it is. Great story on survival and exploitation, the beauty of love and the innocence of children. I can see why it had to win an award.

I got so completely immersed in the historical background of the book that the idea of a living mermaid didn’t seem unfeasible. A great listen.
